Even before I moved to Toronto to attend the University of Toronto, I used to take trips into the city with my friends from Richmond Hill.
While the drive to the city limits is fairly quick being just over 10 miles, the city traffic often made the drive toward downtown Toronto last longer once we were inside the city proper.
Traffic on the long and winding ON-44 can get hectic at varying times of the day. This is particularly true at the junction point with the Ontario 401 Express exit. Back then I wasn’t even using cannabis yet because I wasn’t of legal age, but I had friends who were older that would frequent the cannabis dispensaries in the city during our trips. As I got older, I fell into using cannabis daily as a way to treat my ADHD and depression simultaneously. Now that I’m a student at the University of Toronto, I’m able to take the bus or subway from my apartment in Baldwin Village and reach any of the 200 or so marijuana stores within the city limits. It’s also nice to use cannabis before visiting a number of amazing attractions in the city, especially the huge CN Tower. I like going to Ripley’s Aquarium for Jazz Fridays at least once a month, because you can enjoy looking at all of the aquatic and marine life with relaxing jazz music playing on the speaker system. I saw other stoned people at Jazz Friday last week, no doubt taking a cue out of my own playbook. It’s hard to get bored in a city like Toronto, particularly if you have cannabis on hand to make things even more interesting.
